Kevin is a great guy. As an adult wanting to take guitar lessons he made it very easy for me even though I was nervous about taking lessons. He allowed me to play the songs that I was interested in playing and his instruction was great. He is very easy going and never gets upset or frustrated when I could't get it right. His knowledge to change chords of songs to fit my vocal range was also very helpful. He also gave advice on how to improve my vocals. I would recommend Kevin for any age level for guitar and vocals.

Andi is a really awesome guitar instructor. I started guitar lessons with him with absolutely no experience playing an instrument or knowing how to read sheet music. But because he is really patient, knowledgeable, and at ease with teaching, I have been able to pick up how to play the guitar and reading the tab handouts he gives me after each lesson. He goes at the student’s pace and is willing to change his lessons to teach what new songs I want to learn. After each lesson I am always inspired and reminded why I wanted to take up guitar lessons in the first place. Andi was the very first instructor I met and I’m glad I did. I could not recommend him highly enough as an instructor.

David Williams has given guitar lessons to our son for many years. We have the highest regard for his teaching and his overall positive influence. David is a highly talented musician and a gifted teacher. Our son has great respect for David's musical knowledge and his thoughtful mentoring--and we do as well. David provides very sound guidance and also works to help students achieve their own specific musical goals. David is a great person and a very fine teacher, and we're pleased to give him our highest recommendation.

Both I and my three-year-old son have been taking guitar lessons with Robert for a year now, and we have both been consistently impressed with Robert's talent as a guitarist and a teacher. With my son he does an amazing job of translating concepts and tasks to his level, while keeping everything fun and engaging. My son loves his lessons, and he is beginning to be able to pluck a multi-note sequence. With me, Robert is fun, engaging, and a phenomenal teacher. I enjoy the lesson, and I've improved considerably over the course of the year, going from from not really knowing how to hold a guitar to being able to play a number of pieces of increasing difficulty. I would recommend Robert both to an adult interested in picking up the guitar as well as anyone with a child who has an interest.

To be honest, I was intimidated by Forrest at first. Seeing that some half my age is teaching shocked me, and I immediately thought I would need to get a guitar teacher that had more experience. That would have been a huge mistake! Forrest is incredibly professional. Always on time, always prepared with materials, and always patient and supportive. 5 stars.

I’ve been taking guitar lessons with Jesse for 3 months now, with no prior experience playing. He’s been attentive and patient with me while I develop my technique, and understanding at a pace that works with me. He also takes the time to develop skills to use on your own when practicing. Lessons are laid back and he guides you to become as good as you want basically, it just comes down to how much time you’re willing to allocate to practicing. I would highly recommend Jesse to anyone starting guitar or wanting to further develop their skills. I’m looking forward to continuing lessons with him!

I am a bass player who has always played guitar here and there but nothing too serious, and about a year ago decided I really want to know the fundשmentals of guitar. A friend recommended Jacob Light, whom I've heard play before in local bands, and I decided to take the chance. I wasn't dissapointed to say the least. Jacob is a really down to earth guy who immediately understood my musical style and focused mainly on what I wanted to know, unlike other teachers I've had experience with. Even so, he knew what subjects to insist I learn, like improvisation. and scales. all this was done in a friendly, calm, cool yet persistent atmosphere which is just the right blend for learning, in my opinion.Soon enough I started feeling I really understand guitar, and this new kno'ledge even helped me with my bass guitar playing. Ive been taking guitar lessons with Jacon for 6 months and the only downdise I can think of is the fact he moved to California, otherwise I would have still take lessons from him, without a doubt.

My experience with Golden Gate Guitar Lessons has been nothing but positive. I really enjoy the convenience of having the lessons in my apartment, as opposed to having to travel all over creation. Nathan's a great guitarist, a good teacher and an extremely professional dude. He takes his job really seriously, does lots of prep work and wears a suit everyday. I highly recommend Nathan, I've tried other teachers and he's definitely the best.

I have had guitar lessons with John Lewis for two months now and I have to say without a doubt, he has exceeded my expectations in every way. Not only is he a very talented musician, he also possesses a rare talent for communicating and teaching guitar and musical concepts that are sometimes hard to grasp. He is patient, kind, encouraging, inspirational, and very creative in his teaching style. He knows how to judge exactly how much information I can handle at one time and I never leave feeling overwhelmed. He always makes the lessons interesting, challenging, and FUN! I am so grateful to have found this wonderful teacher and I highly recommend him to anyone from beginner to advanced. He truly is the Best of the Best!!!

Mike has been giving my daughter guitar lessons now for approximately 4 to 5 months. She is just 9 years old, but he is able to really relate to her and her style of music. More importantly, he has been able to build upon the basics while keeping her engaged and excited about guitar. I HIGHLY recommend Mike!

I've had a few guitar teachers along the way. Pete is by far the best to date. He is together with his materials (which are really great as well). He has clear very readable materials that he passes out. He sends out followup audio examples. He's available for questions and in general a very likeable guy. Plus he's very good at playing and singing.. He's the real deal. I especially like his teaching proximity is very close to BART. A++++++ Guitar Teacher.

I've been playing guitar for more or less 12 years and have been performing as a top 40/funk/blues cover artist and church musician for at least 10 years. I constantly play and perform. I'm self taught but I knew major scale theory. I've always wanted to expand my knowledge in playing. Patrick is has helped me with that, he's very knowledgeable about theories and a very effective teacher. He knows exactly what I need to improve my playing and continues to push me towards that direction. I've had good teachers before and they as well was knowledgeable about music theories but Patrick has an edge cause I have heard him apply these knowledge. With my experience in playing more than a decade, I can easily tell that he knows more than theory but also the application of these knowledge, he as well performs regularly and practices a lot to maintain his skills, which for me is a good sign that my teacher is still learning more. I highly recommend him as a guitar teacher regardless of your level in music and playing the guitar.

I wish I could be allowed to give more than 5 stars for Maya, because she is *that* phenomenal. Last year, Maya was one of my son's pre-school teachers, and she quickly became one of my favorite people on the planet. When he told Maya that he wanted to learn how to play the guitar (after seeing her give a demonstration in class), Maya immediately offered to teach him the ukulele, as his starting point. This was a transformative moment for him. Before his first lesson, I thought: "Could a 3-1/2 year old boy really learn how to play the ukulele?" This thought never should have crossed my mind with Maya at the helm. She is remarkable with children. She has developed a method for teaching music to young children that engages them quickly, is developmentally appropriate, and instills in them focused habits for advancement. And, she makes music FUN. My son learned 2 or 3 chords in his first lesson (!!), and with each lesson thereafter, he built upon his previously acquired skills and had so much fun. On the last day of school before summer vacation, he surprised Maya by bringing his ukulele to school and played a duet with her in front of his whole class. Maya not only gave him the gift of making his own music, but also helped his self-confidence bloom. We were devastated that Maya moved out of our area and is no longer able to give my son lessons. But, what she left behind was such a tremendous love of the ukulele, that he has continued lessons with another teacher and is building on his skills every week. Maya is one-of-a-kind: a bright, shining star that envelops everyone in her path in brilliant light. She spreads love everywhere she goes. She is kind, honest, intelligent, and extremely talented. She is a gem of a person. You need look no further in your search for a music teacher.
